    2 hips in 2010. Family medical problems prevented trapshooting in 2011 but managed to DEER hunt in Mo., Wisc. and Illinois in 2011.

    Started back trapshooting this year and felt like I never quit shooting.

    DO THE THERAPY the doctor/therapists want you to do or you will regret it. Everyone that I know who half assed their therapy has had a difficult time getting back to normal.

    New hip in April, 2009. 10 days later I rode my wife's new motorcycle home from the dealership. I work in the oilfields, and I'm on my feet a lot. Do the therapy, and be diligent about it! Best thing I ever did. Should have done it years sooner. It would have saved me from lot's of ibuprofen.

    If Barry says its the easiest, then you can take that to the bank. That's a man shooting with practically every single joint replaced.
